Emergency medical workers were rushed to the house of former president Shimon Peres on Sunday night, after the 92-year-old reported he was suffering from chest pains.
Magen David Adom paramedics performed an ECG test on Peres, which showed he was suffering from a mildly irregular heartbeat.
The former president was then transferred to Sheba Medical Center outside Tel Aviv.
According to a statement from Peres' spokesperson, the doctor treating Peres decided that the veteran diplomat would be hospitalized overnight for observation and testing.
Peres had been released from the Sheba Medical Center last week, after suffering from a light heart attack.
